The Edit menu has the usual suspects one would expect. They are outlined here:
• Undo—Undoes the previous action if possible.
• Cut—Cuts the selected text.
• Copy—Copies the selected text.
• Paste—Pastes from the clipboard.
• Clear—Clears the selected area.
• Select all—Selects all in the active window.
• Spelling—Offers, via a submenu, the option to Show Spelling and Grammar.
• Special Characters—No, this is not how you insert an image of your favorite sci-fi cameo star into your IM. Instead, this brings up a menu of special ASCII characters for making ASCII art, or for other communication uses.
